Combined Import

2/16/21

The admin(s) can set up the school/district GradeCam account with a file that includes all teachers, classes, students, and terms.

This option is highly encouraged as this can ensure greater success for all staff to begin using GradeCam.
By importing site data:

  • • Admins have access the School Reporting Mode  which allows for confident data-driven decision making based on student and teacher specific assessment data across your school or district.
  • • Share assessments and assessment data with other teachers and administrators for work in a PLC or data team and collaborate more effectively with detailed comparison data with the Drill In feature.
  • • Easily push common assessments to teachers to analyze standard, student, class, teacher, and school data.
  • • Staff have immediate access to classes and able to get up and running with GradeCam.

Without a complete import, teachers will not be able to share assessment data and take advantage of this great feature in GradeCam.

Automated roster syncs can be set up using GradeCam’s integration with Clever or an import data file directly from the Student Information System.
